The Waterloo Warriors are definitely a program on the rise. Fans are watching closely as the team strives for their first playoff appearance in a long time. Not only is the program improving on the field, but the university is investing in the football facilities and other athletic facilities.
The Guelph Gryphons have benefited from a generous donation and really put that money to work. The significant improvements to Alumni Stadium have made Guelph a destination in the OUA offering facilities that other schools do not. In the recruiting race the other Ontario schools must reflect on how they will compete with the new norm which is Guelph.
There are not too many better things to do on a Saturday afternoon in the autumn than catch a good football game. A trip to Knight-Newbrough Field in Waterloo to see the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks is a solid experience for a fairly minor investment. Even after all these years, the Hawks are still Golden.
The gang took some impressive trips over the last two weeks and discuss their travels. Are teams pricing the average fan right out of their buildings? Miami is FINALLY in the MLS and big events in USports. Some Mobile and Rochester minor league baseball news and Pawtucket Ballpark update, Finally, how do we feel after the big game and is the NFL dying?
There is just something about crowning a champion. The anticipation. The excitement. The culmination in what was a great season. Sometimes it’s the crowning of a juggernaut. Sometimes the underdog blows away all expectations. Any way you slice it, getting to see that championship team hold the trophy high above their heads is a treat.
